. on the house floor today, speaker john boehner called the republican bill, "pretty simple." >> it says there should be no long term increase in the debt limit until there's a long term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> ifill: today, the house opted for short term, temporarily lifting the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144,

more to them. but emotionally they probably wanted to make boehner pass this bill with his republicans. you know, in a way don't blame them for that. it's a harmless game. there are harmful games and harmless games. that was a relatively harmless one. obama also supported the passage of this, john, i think that if it had been in danger i think enough democrats would have switched over and voted yes. i think they were just trying to make a point. >> john: that makes me feel better. but let me ask you something the number one criticism from my republican friends has been so budget has been passed. why can't you democrats pass a budget how shameful. how should democrats respond to this? >> well, it is true that they haven't passed a budget. you can say that matters or it doesn't matter that much because they operate these days on the continuous resolutions so on and so forth. it does put a little bit of pressure on the senate democrats to do this. but of course this is another thing where you can just just--nothing is written in concrete. you can pass a budget that says we are going to ha

to respond to that and also to comments house speaker boehner spoke about the president's attitude toward the republican party. let's watch. >> over the next 22 months, to be the focus of this administration. they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and, let me just say, i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us into the dust bin of history. >> chris: senator corker, do republicans want to gut social security and medicare? does president obama want to destroy the republican party? >> obviously, republicans want to make sure these entitlement programs are here for future generations, right now, for every dollar we spend on the young people, we are spending $4 on seniors. right now, in medicare, the average person pays for 1/3 of the cost of the medicare program, dick durbin, for what it has been worth has been one of those people who is willing to sit down and solve the problem and i congratulate him on that. as far as the president's goal of annihilating the republican party, i will say that i was glad to see that the house was unified behind something recently as it relat
obama forces republicans to blink. >> their policy they call it the boehner rule. for every dollar increase in this debt ceiling we have to have a dollar in cuts to match that. the president said earlier this month, i'm not doing that anymore. we are not going to keep negotiating over the debt ceiling. this is our obligation over. the republicans have conceded the president had won the argument and are now -- this week they ebb extended the debt ceiling with no accompanied spending cuts. the republicans will cede that issue to him. >> your latest article, mitt romney i'm not going away. tell me. >> certainly was a little different. he came in to toub this weekend for the alfalfa dinner. we hadn't seen a lot from mitt romney since he lost in november. he to told donors that it was purposeful. he is not going anywhere. he will be active in 2013 and 2014s and in terms of 2016. although some sources said his personal ambition for public office are over. >> good to see you both today. thank you so much. >> thank you, t.j. >>> to the weather, the midwest is facing an ice threat. winter s
for months and years crafting a bipartisan agreement. i can tell you, john, i have spoken to speaker boehner about this. every time i see speaker boehner i talk to him about immigration to the point i don't have to open my mouth anymore before he says to me, relax, we're going to do something on this. i know also that representative raul abrador, very popular with the tea party who is on the judiciary committee, is working on a set of principles, so, yes, there is commitment. there is effort that is going to be made. and it is the right time. and, you know, last time immigration reform failed because of timing, because it was brought up after social security had failed. that's why we cannot wait for something else to fail to bring it up this time. you do have to strike while the iron is hot. yes, we have heard these words before. but i can tell you having been at the republican house retreat, it is a different climate today, than it was the last time this was done. >> and, so, dan, you listened to the senators saying no one is going to get everything they want. i want to put that question to

john boehner has when it comes to his own troops. this is an issue that you are going to be seeing some bi-partisan support already on, and the big question is: how does the white house play into this congressional proposal this gang compromise on immigration reform am? but there is clearly plenty of room for bi-partisan. it's the first time in a long time we have talked about republicans and democrats agreeing on something pretty big. i think there is a lot of political momentum here gun control -- >> bill: i think we will have to wait for gun control to next time we look at you, here looking at the clock. >> fair way of putting it. i am not optimistic we are going to see more gun control >> bill: that's more of an uphill battle. thanks, my friend. josh kraushaart editor of the national journal "hotline". >> this is "the bill press show."
